Projection Mapping Workshops ’21
Capacity building in Te Tai Tokerau | Northland
AwhiWorld facilitated two Introduction to Projection Mapping workshops in Kerikeri and Mangawhai in 2021.
Each one day workshop provided a hands-on introduction to all aspects of projection mapping (mapping and manipulating scenes; integrating content, masking, multi-scene creation).
Participants were encouraged to make their own content using mobile devices, with specific training given in stop motion animation. In addition, we demonstrated and discussed how to procure and safely use appropriate projectors and general necessary Health and Safety protocols when using this type of technology.
Building skills in problem-solving, team communication and critique were actively utilised as a core part of the training process. We also encouraged participants to learn through doing and to engage in interactive design processes. All these skill transfer and knowledge building activities were authentically replicating best industry practices and tertiary level training.
We appreciated the partnerships that assisted us to deliver the workshops: Te Whai Community Trust in Mangawhai and Kerikeri Theatre Company in the mid-North.While difficult to deliver in a COVID-19 environment, we managed to get through with much hand washing, distancing and mask-wearing.
The workshops are part of AwhiWorld’s commitment to capacity building in the creative technology sector in Te Tai Tokerau and were kindly funded by Creative Northland.
